In Loving Memory of Robert “Bob” Bradbury ’12

Robert (Bob) Bradbury ’12, age 30, passed away unexpectedly in his home on Thursday, April 4, 2019. He was born January 10, 1989 to Ken Bradbury and Kari Sherman. He attended Oregon schools and graduated from Oregon High School in 2007, where he enjoyed art and Spanish classes and played goalkeeper on the soccer team. His talents on the soccer field earned him a position on the varsity soccer team at Ripon College. While at Ripon he majored in Education and English, graduating in 2012.

Robert was known for his adventurous, energetic, and creative spirit, and translated these qualities into coaching, teaching, music, and art. He had a gift for working with children and made a tremendous impact coaching soccer and snowboarding, guiding hiking and camping trips as a camp counselor, and assisting kids with special needs in the classroom at Monona Grove High School. He was part of a very supportive recovery community in Madison and Fitchburg where he enjoyed sharing his passions for guitar, writing, art, and yoga.

Robert is survived by his parents, Ken and Kari, sister Ann Bradbury (Andrew Navarro), aunts Jeanine Sherman, Laurie Sherman, and Hester Bradbury (Ignacio Navarrete), and cousins Andy Navarrete and Paul Navarrete, as well as many close friends.
